A history of dedication

When Dr. Wilkins Harden founded our pharmacy in 1949, he had a dream of opening a true apothecary. He didn’t want to just provide medications, he wanted to educate the community about health and create lasting relationships with customers. Today, we honor that tradition through our dedication to  customer service, our loyalty to our community, and our quest to meet health needs through services like compounding and medical supplies. 

Our Staff

Daniel Painter

I started with Hawthorne Pharmacy & Medical Equipment in 1987 while in Pharmacy School at the University of South Carolina. Upon my graduation, in 1989 I become a full-time Pharmacist for Hawthorne Laurel Pharmacy. My wife and I have enjoyed living in the Shandon area of Columbia for many years. We enjoy sailing, traveling, and anywhere that has good coffee and cappuccinos.

Kim Cannan

I have been an employee at Hawthorne for over 27 years. I am the Director of Medical Equipment. I have an MBA from USC and am a COF as well. I have 3 kids and we're a marching band, cross country running, girl and boy scouting, camping family.

Having grown up in Columbia as a patient at Hawthorne Pharmacy, Charlotte was excited to join the Hawthorne team in December of 2013. She is a graduate of the University of Georgia and South Carolina College of Pharmacy and currently resides in the Heathwood area with her husband, Thomas, and young son, Lawson. Charlotte enjoys working the retail side of pharmacy. After working in a large retail chain, she appreciates the friendly, helpful staff and environment here at Hawthorne. Working at an independent pharmacy has been a very rewarding experience and has allowed her to help customers even more.

I am John Floyd, a 1983 graduate of the University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy. I have been with Hawthorne Pharmacy for 8 years. I am married and have 3 children. In my free time, I enjoy watching Gamecock sports, playing golf, and spending time with my family.
